Wow!  I'm impressed!

I'm impressed, Blaine. It must be nice to be that handy.

Thanks guys! It's very warm sounding overall, I personally think it's too warm. Anyways Sean, it plays like a champ, but I think I could have sanded the nut just a little lower. I built it from scrap. Just buying everything separately, Keith.

Nice job, Blaine. Looks good. Was it from a kit? Which one?

Beautiful.  How does it play?

That's a sweet looking strat.  I like the paint job.  It's kinda Eddie Van Halen-ish.  Reminds me of a telecaster I built many years ago.

Do you have a favorite one? Which one would be a good one to shoot for as our first one? See More
